  • As it is at the forums

    Increasing Las Vegas’ water rates may not be a pleasant subject, but it’s a needed topic during this municipal election cycle. It’s bound to come up in the near future. If the city is going to improve its water system, it’s going to cost a pretty penny. How to pay for it is an unavoidable subject.

  • Editor's Note - Let the debates begin

    Last year I wrote a column about some “great debates” that took place at West Las Vegas High School. Educators Molly Smollett, Mike Ulibarri and Margaret M. Johnson led several students in a series of debates that I had the privilege to attend and help judge.

    Well, they’re at it again. West’s student debates are scheduled for this Wednesday and, again, I get to be a judge.

  • Still soaring

    They may be young, and they may be lacking the varsity chops of some of their recent predecessors, but the Robertson wrestling team nevertheless remains the team to beat in District 2.

    The Cardinal varsity placed all 12 of its wrestlers into the finals during Friday’s district tournament, and eight of them came away with individual championships. (The team did not field wrestlers in two of the 14 weight classes.)

  • Win slips away from Dons

    Nimble Raton wing Rashaan Craig would not be denied on Friday night, scorching the host West Las Vegas Dons for 31 points and pacing the Tigers to a 69-60 victory at Gillie Lopez Gym.

    Craig did not score in the opening quarter, and West — enjoying a strong start due to good defense and shot selection — led much of the game.

    Henry Flores scored six points in the first period, and a Lucas Rodriguez foul shot gave the Dons a 14-5 advantage with 2:53 left in the quarter.

  • HU hoopsters swept on road

    A costly set of road losses over the weekend has both New Mexico Highlands basketball teams looking to right the ship with this coming weekend’s homestand.

    Mesa 78, Cowboys 60
    Highlands’ men (10-13, 8-11 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) shot 32 percent  Friday at Colorado Mesa (12-10, 10-8).

    The Mavericks, led by Jeff Hart (25 points, eight rebounds) surged to a 45-24 halftime lead that provided protection as the Cowboys played a better second half.
